The five-kingdom classification system was proposed by Robert Whittaker who recognized the kingdom Fungi and doing away with the four-kingdom model. Today, the five-kingdom model is a recognized system and used primarily in the European educational system. It has been refined throughout the years, and today many scientists continue to use it. It forms the basis of the multi-kingdom classification system. This classification system is based on the differences of nutrition, with plants being categorized as autotrophs, animals as heterotrophs, and fungi as saprotrophs.
The Five Kingdom Chart set comes complete with:
- 1 Control chart.
- 1 Mute chart.
- 5 pictures of representatives for each phylum.
- 5 labels to name each phylum. Each label includes the etymology of the word.
- 5 description cards for each phylum.
Movable pieces come printed on thick plastic, cut and ready to use.
Control and mute charts are made from the same material (recycled plastic) that our timelines are constructed from so there is no need for lamination of the charts.
|Control Chart||36 x 12 in.||92 x 30.5 cm.|
|Mute Chart||36 x 12 in.||92 x 30.5 cm.|
Look at our Science Flow Chart for Lower Elementary and that for Upper Elementary to see how this work fits in with the traditional Montessori curriculum.
